COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE 

The College of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Illinois was 
established in 1944. A professional four-year course leading to the Doctor 
of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degree was activated in 1948, and the 
first class of the College was graduated in 1952. During 1957, the College 
was advanced from an undergraduate to a professional status. 

Although one of the newer colleges of the University of Illinois, the 
College is not a newcomer from the standpoint of tradition. A course in 
veterinary science was taught at the University as early as 1870, three 
years after the institution was chartered as the Illinois Industrial Uni- 
versity. In 1899, a Department of Veterinary Science was established in 
the College of Agriculture. This department was replaced by the Division 
of Pathology and Hygiene in 1917. Two years later, a building on south 
campus was remodeled and designated as the Animal Pathology Labora- 
tory and Clinic Building. 

In 1927, a part-time program of extension teaching was formally 
organized and emphasis was placed on sanitation, herd and flock man- 
agement, laboratory aids in diagnosis, and the prevention and control of 
infectious abortion in cattle and swine. Four years later, the Illinois State 
Department of Agriculture began cooperating with the Division of Ani- 
mal Pathology and Hygiene on routine diagnostic work for the entire 
livestock industry of the state. A similar arrangement is now in effect 
between the State Department of Agriculture and the College of Vet- 
erinary Medicine. 

In 1940, the Division of Animal Pathology and Hygiene became a 
Department in the College of Agriculture. This unit was made one of 
the four departments of the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1944. 

OBJECTIVES 

A major objective of the College of Veterinary Medicine is to aid 
Illinois farmers in combating livestock diseases. The prevention and con- 
trol of diseases of all species of animals is. however, the responsibility and 
obligation of the College. This is accomplished, in part, by extensive 
training of qualified students in the art and practice of veterinary medi- 
cine. Anothei important objective is public health. A phase of public 
health work involves suppressing diseases transmissible between animals 
and human beings. Three major activities teaching, public service, 
and research serve in the fulfillment of these objectives by the College. 

Teaching is of two kinds icsident and extension. Resident teaching 

it .ii the undei praduate, professional, and graduate levels. Extension 



teaching is carried on Largely in rural communities but reaches into urban 
areas. It includes on-campus meetings, conferences, and special courses. 

The service program incorporates the important functions of disease 
detection and diagnosis. Many people take advantage of the services pro- 
\ ided by the large and small clinics, the diagnostic laboratory, and 
ambulatory service. Operation of these services also provides valuable 
teaching materials for students. 

Research toward better means and methods of overcoming the 
hazards and ravages of diseases is another important function of the Col- 
lege. Many of the College's research projects are concerned with danger- 
ous communicable diseases including studies on leptospirosis, tuberculosis, 
brucellosis, and rabies — diseases transmissible from animals to man. 
Major investigations are also conducted on noninfectious and nutritional 
deficiency diseases.

FACILITIES 

The College now occupies the veterinary medical basic sciences unit 
located on Pennsylvania Avenue. The four-story, modern, brick building, 
considered one of the finest of its type in the country, provides offices, 
laboratories, and classrooms essential for teaching and research. 

The veterinary medical students have access to the excellent Univer- 
sity library and to other college libraries on the campus in addition to 
their own library located on the second floor of the Veterinary Medicine 
Building. The veterinary medical library contains approximately ten 
thousand volumes covering the broad area which constitutes veterinary 
medicine and related subjects. 

A modern annex for diagnosis and research joins the main building. 

The Large Animal Clinic, a spacious unit of attractive design, is 
located on Maryland Avenue south of the basic science unit. Completed 
in October, 1955, it is designed to accommodate forty- two large animal 



CLASS IN DISEASES OF SMALL ANIMALS 



patients. Included in this building are modern surgery and X-ray 
facilities, pharmacy, recovery rooms, a room for spraying or dipping 
animals, and a feed-storage room. The west side opens into an enclosed 
service and exercise court. 

The Small Animal Clinic will remain in the old Veterinary Clinic 
building, located at Sixth Street and Taft Drive, until new small animal 
facilities are added. These facilities will join the Large Animal Clinic 
building. 

Much of the important research in veterinary medicine is conducted 
by the Department of Veterinary Research in the Agricultural Experi- 
ment Station. An eighty-acre farm on South Race Street, four miles from 
the College, provides extensive facilities for research with various diseases. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of sixty semester hours of preveterinary medical instruc- 
tion is required for admission to the College. Preveterinary students may 
register in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Equivalent pre- 
veterinary instruction may be taken at other recognized institutions. 
Preveterinary medical training does not automatically guarantee admis- 
sion to the College, however. 

Applicants for admission to the College must present not less than 
sixty semester hours of acceptable credit from a recognized college or 
university. Hours earned in military training or physical education are 
not counted in this total. The sixty semester hours must be distributed 
as follows: 

Hours 

Chemistry (including organic and quantitative analysis) 16 

Biological Science (botany and general zoology) 8 

Physics (including laboratory) 8 

Foreign Language 6 

English Composition and Rhetoric 6 

Electives in not less than two of the following fields: economics (including agricultural 
economics), fine arts, language, geography, history, literature, philosophy, political 
science, psychology, sociology, speech. Approximately one-half of these credits 
must be in the following fields: anthropology, economics, geography, history, politi- 
cal science, psychology, or sociology 9 

Free Electives 7 

Total 60 

Proficiency in the use of written English is required. Students who 
receive grades of C or D in Rhetoric 102 or its equivalent are required 
to pass an English qualifying examination. Those who fail to pass this 
examination are required to complete an extra semester course in 
rhetoric (Rhetoric 200). 



n 



Limitation of enrollment of students in the professional curriculum 
is mandatory because of limited facilities. In selecting students for admis- 
sion, scholarship in preveterinary medical work and character references 
are considered. Aptitude testing, general and professional, together with 
personal interviews also serve in the careful screening of students. Prefer- 
ence is given to residents of Illinois and to Illinois service veterans. 

Applications for admission to the school year which begins in Sep- 
tember should be submitted no later than April 15. 

Further information regarding admission requirements may be ob- 
tained by writing to the Dean of Admissions and Records, 100a Admin- 
istration Building, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois.

language as was accepted for admission to the preveterinary curriculum. Four years of 
credit in languages in high school are accepted as fulfilling the requirement for two 
semesters of language. 



THE CURRICULUM 

The fust two years in the College of Veterinary Medicine are de- 
voted largely to basic professional subjects such as anatomy, biochemistry, 
physiology, bacteriology, pathology, parasitology, and pharmacology. 
These courses are the foundation for the applied work oi the final two 



i? 



years. In addition to the basic courses, selected courses are required in 
animal science and dairy science. 

The third year represents a transitional stage in the training of the 
professional student. The courses are of semiapplied and applied nature 
and form a bridge between the fundamental work of the first two years 
and the clinical work of the fourth year. These courses include special 
pathology, pharmacology, general and special surgery, diseases of small 
animals, diseases of large animals, breeding problems and obstetrics, 
plant and other poisonings, and clinical and laboratory practice. 

In keeping with the modern trend in veterinary medical education, 
approximately two-thirds of the instruction in the fourth year is in 
clinical and laboratory practice. This gives students full opportunity to

CLASS IN MICROSCOPIC ANATOMY 



apply knowledge gained in the classroom and laboratory to the diagnosis, 
treatment, and prevention of animal diseases. Courses in radiology, 
diseases of poultry, infectious diseases of large animals, food hygiene and 
public health, jurisprudence, business methods and ethics, and seminar 
complete the period of formal education. 

In the third and fourth years, the class is divided into groups which 
rotate through the various clinical services. Each year the senior class 
spends two days at the Dixon Springs Agricultural Experiment Station 
at Robbs, Illinois, where the students participate in the fall round-up 
and gain valuable experience in the handling and treating of range 
cattle. During the spring semester, seniors take field trips to selected 
pa< king and food processing plants in the Chicago and other areas. In 
addition. I hey have opportunity for practical observations and contact with 
public health agen< ies and their activities, and for research with zoological 

i lens and animal i olonies. 

Graduating seniors ma) apply for commissions in the Veterinary 
1 oi the Army or Air Force, as well as in the United States 

Public Health Servw e.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Students who have passed all courses in the first two years of the 
veterinary medical curriculum and who have an average of 3.0 or better 
in these courses are eligible for the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Veterinary Medicine. 

Students who have passed all courses in the veterinary medical cur- 
riculum and who have an average of 3.0 or better in these courses are 
eligible for the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. 

GRADUATE STUDY 

A program of graduate study leading to advanced degrees — Master 
of Science and Doctor of Philosophy — in Veterinary Medical Science is 
offered. Students may specialize in any of the subject areas of the College. 
Research programs are both fundamental and applied. The major objec- 
tive of graduate study is to qualify the student for veterinary medical 
research, teaching, and clinical specialities. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Grade designations are A, B, C, D, and E. D is the lowest passing 
grade and E is failure. The computation of individual averages is as 
follows: A = 5 points: B = 4; C = 3; D = 2; and E = 1. The credit 
points for a course are computed by multiplying the credit hours by the 
credit points of the letter grade. 

TUITION AND FEES 

There are certain fixed expenses that each student should be prepared 
to meet. The list below covers fixed fees and expenses for two semesters: 

r J'ui(io?i — Illinois residents $150.00

nually to the student editor of the Illinois Veterinarian for the coming 
year. Sponsoring organizations are the Illinois State Veterinary Medical 
Association and the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association. 

Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association Scholarship Award. 
Fifty dollars is given to the senior student with the highest scholastic 
average for the four-year professional course. 

PRIZES 

A number of prizes, including those listed below, are available to 
stimulate initiative and offer financial reward to deserving College of 
Veterinary Medicine students. Not all these prizes are awarded each year. 

Women's Auxiliary of the American Veterinary Medical Association 
Award. Fifty dollars is presented to the student doing the most to ad- 
vance the standing of the veterinary profession on campus. 

Dr. Lester E. Fisher Award. Fifty dollars is given for proficiency in 
small animal clinical work.

Omega Tau Sigma Award. This fraternity annually honors a senior 



17 



student member who has demonstrated high academic and extracurricular 
achievement by inscribing his or her name on a plaque which hangs in 
the college library. This student is also presented a gift. 

STUDENT LOAN FUNDS 

Certain loan funds have been established to aid University students. 
These funds are available to students in the College of Veterinary Medi- 
cine. Loans are not usually made to students in their first year at the 
University. 

The Women's Auxiliary of the American Veterinary Medical Asso- 
ciation has a loan fund for worthy students in Veterinary Medicine. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE 

The Health Service of the University provides routine clinical, labora- 
tory, and X-ray services for all students. Consultation is available on 
personal matters of a medical nature and on dental and psychiatric 
problems. 

In addition, students are eligible for admission and may receive serv- 
ices as outpatients at McKinley Hospital, which operates on campus 
under the Health Service. Hospitalization for students is covered by stu- 
dent insurance. A Health Service physician is in residence at the hospital 
after the regular hours of the Health Center. He provides emergency 
service and admits patients to the hospital if they have not been seen 
by a private physician prior to admission. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT 

Many students work part time while attending school. Because of the 
large number of classroom hours required of veterinary students, how- 
ever, it is recommended that outside work be kept at a minimum. 

At present, a few veterinary medical students are employed on the 
research fai m as animal caretakers and in other University departments as 
laboratory assistants. Such work offers both income and valuable expe- 
rience to the prospective veterinarian. Other veterinary students arc 
employed in board or board-and-room jobs. The student employment 
office, a division of the Dean of Students' office, provides information and 
assistance to the student who needs part-time work. 

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS 

The Housing Division provides current information on all types ol 
accommodations l"i undergraduate, graduate, married, and single stu- 



\H 



dents. It issues application forms for space in University-operated 
residence halls, provides lists of rooms available in other approved resi- 
dences, and supervises standards of safety, health, comfort, and study 
conditions in housing units in which undergraduate and professional men 
and women live. 

Students are requested to contact the Housing Division by mail or 
in person immediately after applying for admission to the University. 
They will then receive copies of the Handbook of Student Housing, lists 
of current vacancies, area maps, etc., and will be given definite instruc- 
tions on how to apply for space in the particular type units in which they 
are interested and which will best serve their individual needs. 

ORGANIZATIONS 

STUDENT CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION 

Students in Veterinary Medicine center their activities around the 
student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Similar 
organizations, all sponsored by the A.V.M.A., are found at all recognized 
veterinary schools and colleges in the United States and Canada. Faculty 
and student representatives from each student chapter meet annually at 
the national convention of the Association to discuss common problems. 

Activities of the student chapter at Illinois include social gatherings 
such as the annual freshman welcome, alumni dance, student-staff spring 
picnic and spring dinner-dance. Guest speakers on many phases of vet- 
erinary medicine and other subjects appear on semimonthly programs. 
The chapter sponsors intramural athletic teams such as basketball, foot- 
ball, softball, and bowling. 

OMEGA TAU SIGMA 

The National Fraternity established Theta Chapter on the campus in 
1956. The purpose of this organization is to develop well-rounded, ethical 
veterinarians. 

Membership is open to any member of the student body in the Col- 
lege. This organization functions efficiently to provide a closer relation- 
ship outside the classroom by group participation in educational and 
social gatherings. 

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

Graduates of the College have formed the University of Illinois Vet- 
erinary Medical Alumni Association. The Association is designed to 
create broader professional acquaintances among the members, to provide 
an opportunity for greater professional knowledge, to maintain contact 
with the College, and to assist the faculty and student body.

WOMEN'S AUXILIARY OF THE STUDENT CHAPTER 

OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION 

The Auxiliary of the Illinois student chapter is open to wives of vet- 
erinary medical students. The Auxiliary meets monthly in the auditorium 
of the Veterinary Medicine Building to hear guest speakers on topics 
related to the veterinary medical profession as well as other topics. One 
member is offered the opportunity of attending the annual meeting of 
the A.V.M.A., and the following semester, reports on the activities of 
sister auxiliaries. Also, the group sponsors social events such as the 
wives' banquet for husbands, a farewell party for wives, and other 
activities. 

RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES 

Athletic facilities at the University include Memorial Stadium, which 
seats 71,000 and serves for football games and track meets. The George 
Huff Gymnasium is used for basketball and other University functions. 
The Armory, with its cinder track and nets suspended from the ceiling, 
permits indoor track meets and early-season indoor baseball practice. 
Illinois Field has freshman and varsity baseball diamonds, a quarter-mile 
track, and tennis courts. The Ice Skating Rink is used for recreational 
skating and physical education classes. 

The Illini Union student activities organization is in charge of 
many activities in the Illini Union Building and all campus activities at 
Urbana-Champaign, such as Homecoming, Dad's Day, Mother's Day, 
etc. The Illini Union Building has lounges, food services, meeting and 
game rooms, browsing library, ticket sales and information desks, and 
other services. 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR VETERINARIANS 

A wide horizon awaits graduates in veterinary medicine. Although 
60 per cent of all veterinarians are engaged in some kind of practice, 
there are also broad opportunities in public service, teaching and research, 
public health, national, state, and local regulatory and inspection activi- 
ties, food sanitation, and related activities. There are increasing needs 
and oppoi tunities for graduate veterinarians interested in teaching, includ- 
xtension and research, as a career. The commercial world needs 
veterinary medical skill in the production of biological and pharmaceutical 

products, in the promotion and sale of such products and in field 

sei \ u <• woi k. 

The United States Departmenl <>i Agriculture maintains a lull- 
time staff of about 1,500 veterinarians whose principal assignments are

the inspection of meat in federally inspected packing plants and ports, 
and field work in animal disease detection, suppression, and eradication. 
By inspecting animals before, at the time of, and after slaughter, as well 
as during processing operations, veterinarians detect and bar from public 
channels unsafe meat and meat products. 

Other opportunities in the Department of Agriculture include stock- 
yards supervision, poultry inspection, enforcement of import and export 
regulations, research work on animal health problems, and licensing 
supervision over the manufacture of serums and vaccines for animals. 

The Army and Air Force also require a substantial number of 
veterinarians for the inspection of foods, especially meat and dairy 
products (to prevent unwholesome or poor-quality foods from being 
served to troops) , and for diagnosis and research. Other agencies that 
employ veterinarians are the United States Public Health Service and 
the Food and Drug Administration. United States veterinarians also 
serve with international agencies such as the World Health Organization 
and the Pan-American Sanitary Bureau. 

Many states and municipalities employ veterinarians for disease con- 
trol and eradication work. They cooperate with federal and local veter- 
inarians, private practitioners, and public health veterinarians in testing 
cattle, inspecting sanitary conditions in packing houses, and inspecting 
meat, milk, and other animal food products. 

Rapid developments in the nuclear sciences with problems arising 
from possible widespread contamination by radio-active fallouts have 
alerted the public to the need for more attention to veterinary medical 
aspects of this danger, namely, the exposure of food-producing animals. 
Veterinarians will be concerned with ways to protect the health of these 



21 



animals and thus provide a safeguard for this important source of food 
for our growing population. 

Other opportunities of a more limited nature include work in zoos 
and public parks, racing stables, animal colonies for medical and veter- 
inary medical research, fur farms, circuses, cattle ranches, and humane 
societies.
